SEAT Approved Used Programme

When you're looking to buy a used car, you need to be sure it's passed one of the industry's most rigorous multi-point safety checks. Rest assured, all SEAT Approved Used Cars have done just that.

In fact, many independent motoring publications have recognised the award-winning SEAT Approved Used Car programme as the best customer confidence programme available. So you can be sure that it is indeed Powered By Trust.

Dependent on source, some SEAT Approved Used Cars may have had multiple users as part of a fleet and/or be ex-business use. In order to meet the SEAT Approved programme requirements, all cars are subject to a rigorous Multi-Point Check by our trained SEAT Technicians to ensure that they meet the same exacting standards regardless of
source. SEAT Retailers can provide information about the number of registered keepers based on the V5 logbook detail. The logbook may include the detail of the last owner only (and not any or all earlier owners), and will not detail how the owner used the vehicle. Neither SEAT UK or SEAT Retailers can guarantee that vehicles have not been used for business or other purposes. Should you require any further information about previous ownership, including logbook details please consult your SEAT Retailer.
